    • L468 SYJ 1993 Polo
      I was wondering if anyone knew the whereabouts of this dark blue Polo, my boyfriend sold it in August 2016 and regrets it - hoping to know the whereabouts or potential of buying it back. It had a 1.3 engine in it when sold but originally had a 1 litre which I believe was sold with it. 
      Its MOT ran out last summer and it's currently SORNed. 
      Hoping somebody might be able to help!

    • The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
      The Polo Social, what is it?

      The Polo Social is a social event held on 28 June ~ 01 July 2019 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.
      So, if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.

      What to Expect?
      A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
      What’s going on?
      Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. 
      Where is it?
      The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years before our recent departure to Kelham Hall, and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
      What do you need?
      If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold-water supply so, bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
      How much does it cost and how to book?
      If you are camping the rate is £21/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate see this https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/357805-polo-social-2019/ To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.

      First Welcome to the forum.   If all the plugs are giving a nice fat blue spark, thenI would start by doing a compression test as valve seat problems are quite common on these engines, even at low mileage, if there is one or more cylinders low, pour a small amount of oil into the cylinders that are low, if the compression doesn't increase it is the valves, if it does increase then it's a worn cylinder bore/piston ring problem, if the compressions are all good & matched (10~15bar lowest limit 7bar & no more than 3bar differnce between any cylinders) then try swopping the injector for the cylinder that reported a misfire to another postion and see if the misfire follows the injector or stays with the same cylinder.

      Yeah I’ve read that the following will fit- mk3 golf/vents seats will go in and mk4 polo seats slot straight in. Along with SEAT Ibiza and Córdoba andddd polo mk5.  was unsure on steering wheel. Other than a mk4 golf wheel will go on. Don’t want to take it all apart if it doesn’t fit 🤔 its the 1.9 diesel. Was contemplating a newer turbo Diesel engine. Or if I’m feeling extra ambitious a 1.8t Audi TT engine! I’ve read these fit ok. Also a vr6 from a mk 3. But finding a decent one is getting hard.

      Not a huge amount to be fair, the Mk2 Caddy pickup is a rebadged Skoda Felicia, which in turn was a reskin of the Skoda Favorit. Which engine has it got in? The 1.6 and 1.9D were a VW engine, so there's a possibility of putting other engines in.    Most of the braking and suspension mods actually involve using Ford bits 😲

      To answer a previous question of mine about torque. Haynes says. Exhaust manifold-to-downpipe nuts 40Nm. Use new nuts. Got new gasket as well.
    • Eviljohn
      The only things i have noticed are horn doesn't work, headlights and dash lights are dimmer and there is a very slight pause at the start of the sweep if i use my wipers. Tends to go away after a few minutes of driving. Sorts itself out straight away if i give the throttle some welly. Headlights and dash lights go back to normal brightness, (running osram nightbreakers,) and the horn works again. Haven't noticed any difference with the fans. Courtesy light, demister and rear wiper have never worked as long as i've had the car. Have no issues with actually starting the car. I do have an aftermarket cigarette lighter fitted by previous owner. I've removed the lighter part and use a usb charger. This works/charges even if the key isn't in the ignition.
